Super Tuesday

Mitch Felan

Donald Trump:

The GOP front-runner’s stampede through the primary season continued throughout Super Tuesday as he won seven of the 11 available states—the most of any Republican candidate.

The candidate does not seem to be slowing down after his Super Tuesday win, as his victory on the day puts him ahead by almost 100 votes.

Hillary Clinton:

Hillary Clinton reestablished her stance as the leader of the Democratic party nominees Tuesday night with comfortable victories in seven out 11 Super Tuesday states.

Clinton is now sporting a total of 1052 delegates after winning 319 on Super Tuesday.

Currently, Clinton is beating her closest competitor, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, with twice the delegates.

Ted Cruz:

Donald Trump’s biggest rival in the GOP nomination is Sen. Ted Cruz and Super Tuesday proved his runner-up status is stronger than ever.

Cruz not only won three states in the competition, but scored second place in four others, mostly behind Trump.

His latest wins put the senator behind Trump with 226 delegates compared to the front-runner’s 319.

Bernie Sanders:

Despite gaining traction on democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ efforts were not enough to best his opponent.

Sanders did have an easier time than most other GOP candidates, though, winning the other four states—Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma and his home state of Vermont.

The senator spent most of his Super Tuesday in Vermont, doing some last-minute campaigning.

Marco Rubio:

Sen. Marco Rubio, fresh off a week of trading insults with GOP front-runner Donald Trump, nestled a landmark for his campaign this Super Tuesday with his first primary win in Minnesota.

The senator also secured second place victories in two states—Virginia and Georgia.

Rubio’s smaller victories are beginning to build up his self-appointed role as the sensible solution for the Republican party.

John Kasich:

Ohio’s governor had a rough night this Super Tuesday, when he became one of two candidates who failed to win a single state.

Kasich, who has been fighting for name recognition in a race he called “nuts” during the last Republican debate, is working towards Ohio.

While Kasich did not win a single state, he came close in second for two—Vermont and Massachusetts.

Ben Carson:

The once-frontrunner suffered a last place finish Tuesday night, becoming the second candidate failing to win a single state next to Kasich.

Carson, coasting by with a dismal seven delegates after Super Tuesday, appears to know the end of his campaign is near.

Carson released a statement on Wednesday saying he saw “no path forward” in his political campaign before announcing he will skip Thursday’s GOP debate taking place in his hometown of Detroit.
